"Jay-Z wrote ALL of Still DRE in 30 minutes (YouTube link)"


  

          

The video is short but Snoop goes into the backstory of the making of Still DRE. He touches on his respect for Jay and how his respect for the craft of writing motivated him to get better.

Even though that’s obviously something I’ve never actually heard.

Ever since I learned that Jay wrote it, I can’t “unhear” it.

Listening to the same beat from 6 PM to 6 AM, looking at the door like, someone has to come in with the magic lines to speed this process along.

Although I didn't know he also wrote Snoop's verse. That was new to me.

And it was new that Jay put everything together so quickly. But he assembles his songs quicky, right?

When Snoop said Jay wrote his verse I was so in shock that I didn't remember that Snoop only did the hook on the song.

...and Hov just switched it to "DRE" and added some Dr. Dre references in there to personalize it on the fly???

Which, of course, is a sign that Dre didn't write it. Ha.

Someone could make a really good YouTube video that touches on Dre's ghostwriters over the years.

I assumed maybe Nas was ghost-writing by then too.

I always trip out that Jay and Sauce Money allegedly wrote a bunch of Puff and Mase’s stuff. And things went sideways around Volume 2 and Jay basically outed Mase.
